The Japanese Occupation of Singapore was a period of three years and eight months marked by death, doom and destruction. Yet it was in the crucible of suffering and despair that God ignited a light—it was while interned missionaries and church leaders were at Changi Prison that they decided on plans for a union college to train locals for pastoral ministry. In 1948, Trinity Theological College was birthed, with its motto, “Lux Mundi” (Light of the World), being a testament to God continuously shining His light and scattering the darkness.
As part of the 70th anniversary celebrations, this trail is an event to retrace the steps of yesteryears in bringing together alumni and the public in remembering our common heritage and shared experiences. Participants will visit the Changi Prison Chapel as well as the former campus at Mount Sophia and, through this journey, hope to reignite old aspirations and rekindle friendship bonds.
Organised by Trinity Theological College.
